Why I Will Probably Lose my Hard Earned Mother of the Year Award.

Jeremy comes running up the stairs, with Joe trailing not too far behind. "Mom," Jeremy says, "I'm going to watch some of Narnia." I tell him that that's fine. Joe says, "Chronicles of Horny, mommy."

Good grief. He can recite The Sanctus better than the Pope but he can't say Narnia.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

At the park, Joe throws a fit because, well, he's two, does he really need a reason? He also runs away from me whilst throwing the fit. I call after him to came back and am met with the ever popular, "NO!"

I begin to chase him down and my legs are longer, I will catch him. While he is making his mad dash away from me he senses that I am running after him and he begins to yell, "Help, help! Help, me. I'm scared."

Who wants to be my one phone call?


Look to the finish!

Bwaahahaha...Girl, this is the second time in as many days that you've made it to the 'Gotta tell that to my husband' pile!

Too funny! Nope, no mommy of the year award for you--terrorizing your children in public and teaching little ones such words!

Hillary said...

HAHAHAHAHA! Clever kid! I can say that, though, because none of my boys have tried that.....yet.

As much as I love hearing from you, don't blow your one call on me, because I'll be no help at all as I'm stifling my giggles and chuckles and yelling into the background, "Honey, guess what happened to Laney!" Maybe call Jess - and then she can call me?

Dy, who is going to be muttering "help! help!" and chuckling to herself now for quite a while...

Joe is hilarious! Laurie had told me the park story and I was feeling your pain. Boys are fun!

Funny post! One that only proves, that if your group of peers are responsible for handing that award out--you're still in the running!

We understand!

Oh, call me and I will take custody of the little rascal. I miss him more than I can say. I can still hear him saying "you gotta wait" "you have to be patient" and "later (pronounced wayter)". He is waaaayyy too smart!

Once upon a time I took my 6 year old to the men's bathroom in a crowded restaraunt. I pushed him into the stall in front of him and told him to do his business. He was dawdling, as young boys as prone to do. Finally I got irritated with him and so I poked him in the shoulder.

He shouts out, "Daddy! Don't touch me there!"

Suddenly outside of our stall, the entire crowd of men goes silent. I was so embarassed I had to wait until they all left before we came out. :)
